Matchbook Romance - The Greatest Fall Of All Time Lyrics

The hand of my clock strikes two
In times when I got the best of you
We made promises we couldn't keep
And every night we couldn't sleep.
I didn't know why, but didn't ask questions
because it was the first time in my life, yeah the first time in my life
Where I, did something right.

I set myself up for the greatest fall of all time
I set myself up for the greatest fall of all time

You pick me apart
While I search for witty things to say (In my defense)
"You'll never amount to anything anyway"
(Don't press your luck, don't press your luck)
And think that I'm impressed with your one night stands
and your contagious kiss
I'm trying to get this right
Yeah, cause I'm ridiculous like that

I set myself up for the greatest fall of all time
I set myself up for the greatest fall of all time

I'll keep this as
A constant reminder
Of the nights I spent holding onto her
And rest assured I'm moving on
I miss you less, with each day you're gone (you're gone)

I set myself up for the greatest fall of all time
I set myself up for the greatest fall of all time
I set myself up for the greatest fall of all time
[in EP it is repeated 2 times, not 3]

    Blasting this in my car in High School. Girlfriend in the passenger seat. Friends in the back seat. One of them doing the double bass with his feet. All of us singing and screaming along. Some of the best times of my life.

    So you are around my age? I turn 30 this year.

    I think everyone here is roughly around the same age. I'm 28 next month. Crazy to think how long ago this was yet it seems like yesterday.


    Yeah I remember listening to this around 05 also but I didn't actually understand or relate to the lyrics. Now its like.. fucking shit. Deep.
